I was not yet born when this came out but I did see it on a VHS tape a few years ago. George Reeves is one of two actors that you think of when you think of Superman (the other being the Superman of my era, Christopher Reeve). He was so sincere in the role that you would have never guessed that he had any problem with it. He didn't get to be the big movie star, but he achieved immortality through a legion of fans, some not yet born when he did the Superman TV show. Although I like the Christopher Reeve version of Superman, I like George's interpretation as well.

Was this shown on TV or at schools?

Not bad at all, and we even get to see Lois tied up!

Boy, watching this episode brought back memories. I watched it back in the '50s and was one of those kids, like those you see in the movie Hollywoodland, who actually believed George Reeves was Superman.

This episode stars the second actress to play Lois Lane, Noel Neill. I remember being a bit confused about that at the time.

I downloaded the Windows Media file. Video and audio are fine.

Actually, Billbarstad, Noel Neill WAS the first to play Lois Lane, since she did the role in the film serials with Kirk Alyn. But yes, Phyllis Coates was the first on TV, in this series.
